So there we have it - a whole series of the stunning colours of the skies over Skye from each day of last month and the beginning of this one. And what a thirty days it was! As always, I'm delighted to have completed the paintings and even though I've been painting clouds for a few years now, I feel I've learned so much in the last month.
Thank you for sharing the experience with me - I'm off to busily frame paintings of a whole other genre (life drawings and abstracts) for my next exhibition (see my exhibitions page for details). Then I'll delightedly pick up the paintbrushes and/or pastels again with glee.

Frothy giggles rise up into the ether as the spring air buoys them with a zing they couldn't contemplate in wintry hibernation. They skip and frolic - and the giggles continue to bubble up and release with the light playfulness and complete abandon that springtime invites.
